Term 5 -A Bugs Life!
Welcome back to term 5, at last we can enjoy some sunshine! This term our topic is called 'A Bug's Life!'. We are going to be learning all about minibeasts and hunting for them around the school grounds. Please see our attached curriculum letter and topic web for more details about what we are going to cover in class this term.

Curriculum Letter Term 5

We went out on a bug hunt around the school! We had lots of fun and found spiders, flies, snails and worms.

Term 4 - I need a Hero!

This term we are learning about Superheroes, those that you may know from stories but also real life heroes.


We have a few events happening this term. Firstly, we have World Book Day, where we will spend the week focussing on the story 'Supertato'. We will also have stories read to us from other teachers around the school. We will finish this week with a dress up day, dressing up as our favourite book characters.  Then later in the term we will be looking at the celebration of Easter and finally we will finish the term with our super show 'Paxfactor' where we get to share all the wonderful talents the children have.

Today we had a visit from a real life superhero!

Try at home...
Welcome back to term 3. We hope you all had a lovely Christmas break. This term our learning is based around the book 'The Smartest Giant in Town'.

A Winter Welly Walk - we went out looking for signs of Winter. The children wanted to find a real robin! We found lots of puddles and enjoyed jumping in them!

Term 2 The Jolly Postman


We are starting off the term with some celebrations! We are going to be finding out about Diwalli and Bonfire Night. We will be making some paper lanterns to hang around the classroom and having a go at creating some colourful firework pictures.  We now have our very own Post Office in the classroom, where we can write cards, post letters and weigh parcels.  We will be finding out about what happens to a letter once it has been posted. We will also be writing some very special letters of our own in preparation for Christmas!

Whoops-a-Daisy Angel Nativity Performance 2017

This term we are learning all about our new school and making new friends. We are going to be sharing the book Elmer by David McKee. We will decorate our own elephants and have a go at colour mixing using paint.
